I have worked with students in various classrooms around the Philadelphia area and I recently moved to College Station, TX, to work at Allen Academy as a math teacher!

I am a graduate of Haverford College, B.A. Mathematics, Minor in Education and Certification in Secondary Math Education. I have worked with students in various classrooms around the Philadelphia area and I recently moved to College Station, TX, to work at Allen Academy as a math teacher! I feel passionate about helping others learn math because I understand what it is like to feel like you are not a "math person" and the incredible growth that can come from the right math mentors. I was someone who personally struggled in math throughout my elementary school years. With the help of some great teachers and their individualized teaching methods, I was able to proudly state that "I AM a math person". I feel so passionately about teaching and tutoring because I genuinely want students to feel that "aha" moment that I felt as I was developing as a learner. Now I understand math fluidly, to the point that I have a degree in this field from one of the top liberal arts colleges in the country. I am patient, helpful and empathetic to individual student needs. I can take that math student who says they are "just not a math person" and give them the skills they need to feel like they will succeed in any math classroom. I know how frustrating it is to be in their shoes and I am willing to help. I know that all students learn differently and I am willing to provide that differentiated instruction. From verbal learners to hands on learners, I will help my pupil learn basic math skills in a way that makes sense to them. I can tailor my tutoring to help students succeed in the particular classroom that they may be struggling in, giving organizational skills and advice for how to get through tricky homework problems or test stress. I can provide extra help mechanisms outside of class in the form of skill building practice problems, worksheets, or anything that may help your student succeed. I will work through any questions they may have and see the gaps in their understanding-then we will work as a team using bottom-up strategies to fill those gaps. Your student deserves to feel like they are capable, and with a little help, I have no doubt that they can succeed: Everyone can learn. Individualized, caring and insightful attention is what your student needs to say, "...maybe I really AM a math person!".

I am currently a pre-algebra teacher to 6th and 7th grade students at a nearby private school. I enjoy helping young people see how math fits into the world around them, and how to get over math fear/anxiety. I notice that with dedicated practice and step by step processes, students can really improve their understanding. I work in a very personalized way with all of my students to make sure there are no gaps in understanding. We work on practicing for fluency, learning everything in a step by step format, and accomplishing mastery of each topic with clarity and consistency. I believe that every single person can learn math if it is taught in a positive, clear format.

Amazing Teacher

Tina was amazing with my son. She was able to explain the content in a clear way and gave him confidence in his abilities.

patient and thorough.

Tina took her time with Ryan making sure she fully understood the material before moving on to the next section. Additionally, Tina would then go back to the other sections for a quick review
